Summary of meeting 1/08/2016
Hey guys, so here is a wee summary of what Angelo and I discussed last night.
Theme: 35 Years, still here, still needed.
Date: Saturday 1st October
Event: March and Rally during day. Gig in evening. (?)
(Non-collective volunteers to help make signs etc? Organise a day for this? Post on RC FB a call out for volunteers for event? Have stalls at upcoming Uni/OP/Community events to get volunteers?)
March- Meet at Dentist School 1.45pm. March begins 2pm. Walk to Octagon (however long that takes).
Rally- Begins at Octagon when everyone gets there. Rally includes Speakers and some chill music acts, maybe have some volunteers selling badges/collection box/sign up sheet for 2017 volunteer training? Finishes 4.30 at latest?
Gig- Doors open at 7.00. Music starts 7.30ish, ends whenever it does (?) How long should we suggest set times be, if we do so? All ages, sober gig? Someone on door with koha box? Think about accessibility, safety, security.
Nick Graham will provide gear and do sound for both the Rally and Gig. Must ensure enough time between the two to transport gear from octagon to gig venue, set up again and have sufficient sound checks for acts if they want/need. Who can provided transport for this?
Angelo and I discussed the fact that The Attic is up three flights of stairs so it already cuts out a whole lot of people that may want to come to the event and that's not cool! Appropriate and affordable venues are pretty hard to find at the moment, so while we can keep The Attic in mind, we probably should look for a more accessible place.
Maybe we could look into the Community Gallery?
And I know the Women's Pioneer Hall is hard to get in touch with but we should give it another go! What do people reckon?
If anyone can think of any other venues that may suit that would be sweet!
Also here are some links to musicians that are keen to play/ we can ask if they wanna play (Angelo has some more to post too). Have a listen :).
E-Kare: http://e-kare.bandcamp.com/ (Wellington)
Pesk: https://peskband.bandcamp.com/ (Dunedin)
Perry Buoy: No music currently online but here is her FB https://web.facebook.com/PerryBuoyMusic/?fref=ts (Dunedin)
Birdation: https://birdation.bandcamp.com/ (Dunedin)
Yung Nat$: https://yungnats.bandcamp.com/releases (Dunedin)
Yung Nat$ are quite a political band, would be good to have peoples input on whether or not this would be positive/negative/doesn't matter for Rape Crisis's representation/ association with particular political views to the public. Hope that makes sense :P
We also thought it would be cool to have someone DJ in between sets, Lisandru Grigorut is keen to do that, you may know them as $noregazZzm, they do a bunch of music stuff and would be a sweet DJ.
Here is links to some of their music if you want to check it out. (Although they may not be specifically playing this stuff).
^ These are people we had in mind for like an evening gig. Below are some performers that could possibly play at a rally during the day?

Last things to consider also, can we put up any of the out of town people into places to stay? What is our budget for this if we have one? Angelo can you post up things too or correct me if I got any of this wrong?
Hope this all makes sense and let us know what you think!! :)
See you all tonight to ,discuss this further.
